There are three human characters in this drama including fleeting appearances by a necessary neighbour.

When salesman Jonas arrives home after his last ever day at work, his daffy wife is looking forward to his long, peaceful retirement. Unfortunately, he doesn't see things that way. To begin with he is a workaholic used to a six day week, and on top of that the lady of the house is a cross between Francis of Assisi and Dr Dolittle. Although of course he was not unaware of this, he appears not to have realised just how far she gone she really is, cramming the house with all manner of stray cats and dogs, even feeding one of the mangy curs steak for breakfast.

Unable to adjust to lying in bed of a morning, he is persuaded to take up a hobby to fill up his days. Obviously this is all going to end very badly, but for whom and how? The lead is played by M. Emmet Walsh, who has played irascible characters like this throughout his long film and TV career. Indeed, the workaholic side of Jonas could almost have been based on him.
